Living in Santa Coloma, the hall of the capital
Santa Coloma is one of the 3 towns that make up the parish of Andorra la Vella, along with La Margineda and the capital that names the parish. It is located on the right bank of the Valira River, just before the capital, entering the country from the south, and without any visible physical reference that can distinguish one from the other. In 2017 it had a population of 2,967 inhabitants according to the Department of Statistics of Andorra.
The main avenue of Santa Coloma is the Enclar Avenue, known by its residents as the “straight of Santa Coloma“, is the main artery of the economic activity. It is characterized by the large number of businesses related to the sector of motorcycles and gas stations (legacy of its past as the main route of entry and exit of the capital). We can also find car dealers, neighborhood shops, the large InterSport sports mall and the free-style 360Extrem Andorra complex training macro.
For some time now, the traffic to the other localities of the country has been concentrated by the main road 1 (CG-1), which runs on the other side of the river avoiding residents' annoyance, which makes it more pleasant to live in Santa Coloma.
It has a special location: it is 5 minutes away from the capital and very close to the southern border of the country. It also offers a unique and very characteristic landscape of Andorra which, together with the ubiquitous Valira River, give the town a very calm and pleasant atmosphere when it comes to buy a house in Santa Coloma.

- The church of Santa Coloma is one of the most outstanding jewels of the Romanesque in the Principality of Andorra and one of the oldest temples of the territory, which dates from the tenth century. Its lombard 4-storey belfry with circular floor is unique in the country. It was for many years home to the Santa Coloma master's paintings, made in the twelfth century. An important historical heritage recovered in 2007 by the Government of Andorra after the paintings left the country in 1930 to Berlin museums and private collections. Soon they will be able to be contemplated in the museum that the government of Andorra has projected for it. What one can see in the church is a baroque altarpiece of the eighteenth XVIII century and a medieval sculpture in polychrome wood of the Virgen de los Remedios.
- Even older is the Castle of Sant Vicens d'Enclar, probably from the the ninth century IX, of Visigothic period, that can be found after a small effort walking that will be rewarded by the views and the discovery of the fortification. With a rectangular floor plan and a square apse, it has a terraced bell tower with a circular floor plan, such as the church of Santa Coloma.
